and niche because of the control i guess.


and the #1 reason i won't support nintendo for a long time until they drop out the price.

When you get a business run you will understand that profits are good things while lossess ( huge in case of Sony e MS ) are bad.

The fact is that the demand of Wii is really strong so it seems that for the values that device offer the price is "fair"

Wii is expensive because Nintendo made money from day one while Sony is still losing money on every PS3 sold. Wii cost just little more then PS2 to make while $120 more expensive.

Wii is expensive because it is profitable? Is that your argument?

The sadder thing is, fanboys, or idiots, like Impulsivity, actually believe this crap. I mean, where is the Wii today?


It has sold MORE than double the competitor. Playstation fanboys like to pick on the 360, but when the Wii fanboys get on Wii, they state the same crap said about the Wii in 06-07 since they have nothing else to say. Wii also has great games. It's just fanboys hate to admit which makes them sound like butts anyways.

So since Sony is not looking at themselves as a competitor, this must mean that they are number one. Right? Also notice that his selling point is that the PS3 is a Blue Ray player. That wouldn't make IT a niche device. Now would it?

No because its only your anti-Sony opinion that Blu-Ray is a niche format.  Its getting bigger and bigger all the time, and it will replace DVD period.  Wow sorry, but I had to put in my two cents that Nintendo fanboys can find something to cry about even when their "niche game device" is selling like hot cakes.  Look, is the DS in competition with one of those still screen Tiger handheld games?  I think not.  Same story here.

No, actually an easily identified problem with the Wii is that it is underpriced.  After 1.5 years it still outsells on a weekly basis, leaving no stock for "impulse buyers".

Whether a product is overpriced or not isn't a  factor of what it cost, but a factor of how much people are willing to pay for it.

 

Don't "support Nintendo" or any company, buy the product you want.

thers no comparison between a wii and ps3, or even a 360 for that matter,

both HD consoles tower above the wii in gaming

unless you are a child/family/minigame gamer.

This is absolutely true.  The Wii caters to an entirely different audience.  I have  not met one Wii owner that is interested in the PS3, but when asked admitted they weren't interested in the Wii either until they saw its novel control scheme.

 



I don't know what comes first...

LOL or WOW? should I laugh? say it? or do it at the same time?
